    Nice looking bike, but then that maybe because to me it looks like a BMW F 700/800:scratch

    Add a little Ducati Multistrada/DL1000/CB500X and they all start to look similar.

    I like it.

    I saw a Youtube clip on them Mark - the thing was bagged more than a Restaraunt in Santorini

    Seems the only thing they got correct was the number of wheels a bike is supposed to have

    Just read a couple of reviews on the bike, not a lot of love for it although everyone said it did look good, which was the only good thing most said.

    Well it weighs as much as most Yamaha's so nothing lost there.
    It's such a shame that this mid size capacity bike weighs so much..

    Mate had a bennelli , it was a piece of junk and no one knows how to fix them , dropped coolant out of the head in the first 250ks and he got ulcers trying to get the thing fixed lots of arguments with the bike shop / repairer , 3 major engine rebuilds in under 6000 klms . SAve the heartache and buy something else Just my 2 cents worth. i'll get off my soap box now
